Spring 2017 Chipping/Yard Waste Collection Program

The Spring Chipping/ Yard Waste Collection Program will commence the week of April 3, 2017.  The town will be divided into five (5) sections and each section will have a pick-up on the First Day of the scheduled week for that area.

All brush must be out for pick-up on the First Day of the scheduled week for the section. Absolutely no brush will be collected once a section is completed. Residents are advised that there will be no more than one pick-up per household.  There will be No Exceptions to the published schedule.

Due to new collection procedures, please place brush such that it is accessible to be picked up by large equipment from the street.  The largest size branches shall be limited to four (4) inches in diameter. Lumber, building materials, leaves, roots, stumps, briars, vines, decayed branches and other debris which can damage the equipment will not be accepted. Material of this nature will be left for your disposal. Residents are advised to place at curbside only the wood items listed above.  There have been instances where metal items such as posts, wire and metal bands were found mixed with the brush.  This can cause severe injury to employees and damage to equipment. Should metal be found, the pile will be rejected.

Residents should note that the 2017 Spring Chipping Program will begin in Section #5 and terminate in Section #4. Branches should be placed at curbside prior to the first scheduled dated of pick-up.
